Deadline Extended for State Grants to Elderly Waiver Customized Living Providers
On October 29, 2019 by Jeff Bostic
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has extended the deadline for responding to the RFP for a grant program to improve the resident experience in Customized Living. The deadline to submit a proposal is now Dec. 9.
There are $1 million grants available. The grant program was designed to give preference to Customized Living providers who serve a high proportion of Elderly Waiver clients, with those over 50% receiving bonus points on their application and those over 75% receiving even more. However, that criterion is worth only 15 out of 100 points.
We encourage all enrolled Customized Living providers who have an idea for how to use grant funding to improve their residents’ experience to apply since they may score well enough in other parts of the application to receive a grant.
